Similarly, the Drake L-4B (and L-7) supplies use a 0.82 ohm fusible resistor
in the HV line as a "glitch" resistor. When mine blew, it was a relatively
benign event. A "Real Glitch Resistor" in series with that (thanks, VE7RF)
would limit the surge current while the fusible resistor does its thing.
Harbach and other sources have equivalent fusible resistors.
